Most Awkward Human Being Alive

IMG_8544

The first time I met with my therapist he was telling me that because of my upbringing, I have been in fight or flight mode for most of my life. I was devastated by this and because of that I started feeling awkward. So what did I do? I BURST INTO SONG. Should I Stay Or Should I Go by The Clash seemed most appropriate. And what did he do? STARTED SINGING ALONG WITH ME.

Thank God for the awkward.

    1. It’s a response to a perceived threat. Fight, flight and also freeze… I was a small child when I began experiencing emotional abuse. Flight wasn’t an option. So I disassociated. I don’t think the response has anything to do with escapism or avoidance. It’s about survival.
